cross country travels, part 3

this is the final post of our vacation. it only took two months for me to write about, maybe because there is more important and fun going on in the lives of these four micks. however, if you really like reading about our two week travel across the country called "vacation," enjoy. if you missed part 1 and part 2, feel free to read them.

on saturday morning, we got up and ready for the day. adam and i headed over to sam's club to pick up a few things we needed and then we were on our way to meet tina and doyle at the kick-off of the power tour. when we got there, there were parking lots full of cars. some new, some old, some beat up, some everyday cars. we parked and got settled, pulling out the canopy and chairs. we sat and chatted. admired some of the vehicles that we could see, then we decided to walk over to where all the vendors were set up. with our long-haulers card, we got free stuff when we went to each trailer. at 5pm, there was a show that introduced each of the sponsors, prizes were given out and games were played. besides the driving in the mornings and a few stops, everyday follows the same routine of things...get there, walk around, show, leave for the evening.
